Statement Sweater

Do you ever come across a piece of clothing while shopping that you
just know will become a staple item in your wardrobe? That’s how I felt
when I found this light-weight sweater at the JCrew Outlet a couple
weeks ago. Guess what? It’s still available! A link is provided below.

For obvious reasons, I was drawn to this top because of the built-in statement necklace. How easy is that?! All I have to do is add earrings and maybe a bracelet, and I’m done! The sweater does all the work for me. The color palette also is versatile enough that I can wear it now with white skinny jeans and a blush purse, but I can carry it into the early fall months with dark wash jeans and brown riding boots. I rarely buy clothes these days unless my cost-per-wear is pretty high, so the fact that I can basically wear this year-round was a major selling point for me.

On a side note, if you follow me on Instagram, then you will know that I bought this purse from E! News’ Love It, Buy It segment a few weeks back. I am completely obsessed – it makes me wish I would have ordered the purse in mint, too! I definitely will be checking out other bags from Melie Bianco.

    You are too sweet, thank you! I don't think I'm so photogenic, but I appreciate the compliment. 🙂 Yes, the built-in statement necklace sure takes away a step in the getting ready process every morning.

    Believe it or not, this is the first top I've ever bought from JCrew! I have a lot of trouble with their sizing. Yay for white jeans season!

    I LOVE that the shirt has a built in statement necklace! Talk about making it easy to get dressed!! J Crew can do no wrong in my book. I can't wait to break out my white pants again.. I always feel weird wearing them before Memorial Day for some reason.. thank goodness that is this weekend! 🙂
